  • Focus

    James Simons School is a safe, inclusive and supportive public Montessori community. We inspire students to become confident, motivated and successful life-long learners. The school is set on the Charleston peninsula.

    Partial Magnet schools are those with a prescribed attendance zone within a Constituent District coupled with the opportunity for students to apply for seats available after all the attendance zone students have been placed. The Partial Magnet category emanated from the time when new buildings were constructed to accommodate future growth of an area. Prior to growth resulting in the building reaching capacity, it was decided to make the open seats available to other students within the Constituent District first and the District as a whole second until full capacity was realized with students from the designated attendance zone.

    Application Grades: PreK3 - 8th
